Crevolea Portal Tomb

Map Reference: C847234 (2847, 4234)

This portal tomb has a massive capstone, estimated to weigh about 50 tonnes. A report of 1837 states that the capstone rested on four pillar stones and the tomb was about 4m high. Two of theses stones were removed in the later 19th century and the tomb now stands about 2.8m high. The capstone rests on at least three other large stones. One of these appears to be a side stone and the others may be portals, now collapsed. One of them is under the capstone. The capstone is at least 2m long by 2m wide and 1.5m thick.
